    I have been working at Boston Scientific full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Boston Scientific has better perks, benefits, and recognition than my previous company. They are big on work life flexibility and they do respect it.

    Cons

    Finding a con for this company is difficult. Communication between groups are lacking and that vacation time is used for two shutdowns (forced to use vacation).

    Advice to Management

    Keep your people happy and output / moral will grow.

    I have been working at Boston Scientific full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Strong collaborative culture with no real politics or BS - very focused on results; if you are executing then mgmt doesn't care where/when you do it - very flexible; great momentum and enthusiasm for the patients we are reaching and the new innovation and results we are delivering! It's also a fun place to work.

    Cons

    Good energy behind recent D&I initiatives but still need more diversity at senior ranks

    I worked at Boston Scientific full-time

    Pros

    Great company culture, spirit of innovation, focus on industry ethics.

    Cons

    Management seems stuck in the last century and seems scared of having too much talent. Advancement was more related with time at the company and networking than with results.

    Advice to Management

    It seemed like virtually everyone at the company was from the midwest, so management might look to bring in more young talent from other areas of the united states.
